VIM-users might want to put the following function definition into their

  function ocdoc () { command vim -R $OCAMLLIBPATH/$1; }

where $OCAMLLIBPATH is set to the location of the library directory. A
simple e.g. "ocdoc list.mli" (or also "ocdoc") on the command
line will display the nicely highlighted code in a shell window (starting
up Emacs in a similar way is just too slow :-)
